Masques Anthology
Medusa's Laugh Press

In this anthology, we are seeking works that mask/masque themselves in the form of something else. For example, things like receipts, lease documents, and art exhibit catalog entries can contain stories within them while also functioning as what they are. Similarly, letters, elementary school essays, and personal ads can tell more than one story at the same time. Here are a few more possibilities: product reviews, instructions, police reports, journals, and interview transcripts. NB: A story turned into a Twitter feed is a cliche at this point.

We are open to any genre. Graphic elements are welcome as past of a narrative/discursive thread. The ideal submission takes integrity, as well as content into account. There are no length limits.
